Pharyngula has received an apologetic e-mail from Jin Han, one of the authors of the Proteomics paper that caused a stir. Like PZ, I don’t buy the whole “confusion between drafts” thing. It doesn’t address either the bizarre claims made in the paper or the plagiarism. But at least the authors are going to request a retraction.
Peer review may have failed at the official level, but it’s alive and well in the blogosphere.
